    Wip WIP Continent of Geios

    This map was created using Tear's Saderan Tutorial. Awesome and easy tutorial!
    Any and all criticism is welcome. Specifically, I'm looking for a "proofreading" in terms of name position. I've read through Imhof's essay on Positioning Names on Maps. I know in the essay he specified rules for rivers, but I don't recall seeing anything for other bodies of water. (If I missed something, let me know!) I've scoured the net for maps as references and it seems oceans and seas are written either horizontal or curved, but I haven't seen any maps in which a bay or gulf is curved. Is that correct, and is there a reason for that?

    Also, I'm unsure about bodies of water. I did my research but I would love some help. (See: second map.)
    Okay, I'm pretty sure area 4 is a sea, but I also think the others might all be seas too. Maybe with some channels in there. I'm clueless here. lol Help please!

    Lastly, I was hoping to make a political version of this map. Are there any tutorials out there? I couldn't find anything. If not, I'm assuming it's as easy as making each country a different color with an inner glow and texture.

    Thanks for your time peoples! I love this community.
